I’m a South African through and through, but when it comes to Bafana Bafana... I’m constantly left sad and speechless. What is there to say? Bafana continues to disappoint us on a daily basis. We had such high hopes for the team since the glory of the African Nations triumph all those years ago, but the boys have continued to disappoint. It actually makes me sick. But I will continue to support and cheer for Bafana. Congratulations over their recent triumph.
On a different note I think former President Thabo Mbeki was right about names such as Bafana Bafana. On a bigger scheme of things, on the world footballing stage we cannot afford to be small boys. We need to be men. How about changing the name to Banna Banna.
I will only LUV to see these three players in the team:

If I was COACH – this would have been my team my man!
1) Rowen Fernandez
2) Sibusiso Zuma
3) Steven Pienaar
4) Aaron Mokoena
5) Young players from the South African League
6) Benni McCarthy
The reason for Bafana Bafana's playing is that the team doesn’t gell together. If we look at our team of 96 with Doctor Khumalo and Mark Fish and Lucas Radebe and compare with the current team there is no doubt who the better side is. Though the current team has the same amount of talent with players like McCarthy and Pienaar playing in the English Premier League. What we need is a local coach such as Jomo Sono, Clive Barker or even Gordon Igesind to help get the team playing and working together properly.
One thing that I have noticed about South Africa and other African teams for that matter is we don’t play organised soccer. We don’t switch play we just play small passes which ends up making the who9le game get played in the centre. Egypt is a fine example of a team that does infact play organised European style football. We need a manager that will play our youth players and make a good mix of experience and youth to play in 2010. We must realise that players like McCarthy and Zuma will be old by 2010.
